Why Accurate Document Service Is Important

When you have legal papers that need to be served, you want to know that they will be served quickly and accurately so that your case can move forward in the courts. It is very important that you choose a private process server who is going to serve your papers accurately. Here’s what that means and why it is important.

What Is an Accurate Serve?

There are certain guidelines that process servers must follow when serving papers. These guidelines dictate what proof of identity the process server must obtain in order to leave the papers. It also dictates when a signature accepting the papers is necessary and how the papers can be delivered or posted. These guidelines are different for different types of cases.

It is extremely important that your private process server follows these guidelines. They are there to protect you and your case. If they do not serve the papers accurately, your case could be delayed or dismissed.

Gutter Serves

Some less ethical private process servers engage in gutter serves. A gutter serve is when the process server claims to have served the papers, but in truth they just threw them away. Gutter serves are one of the biggest reasons that small claims and other civil cases with self-representation are dismissed. You should always require proof of service from your private process server.
